    Totally Screwed Overseas

    Advertisement



    I just arrived to London yesterday and my 8700 did as expected, I was receiving emails and welcome messages etc.
    When I awoke this morning, I realized my phone alarm hadn't gone off. I looked at the 8700 and had the spinning hourglass of death.
    I pulled the battery and let it go through what it does and after it rebooted, I was missing half of my service books. I resent them via TMO site and they never showed up. I check the HRT and there are no networks to register to; am I screwed until I get back home? We're on tour overseas for another month.
    Buck!!!

    Officer, did you have tmo allow international roaming on your BB before you left the states.

    If not they may have shut down your service for security/theft reasons.

    Yeh, it looks like the whole of N/America is down !! I believe UK is still up, I suppose all you can do is wait, unless you want to unlock your BB and get a UK data plan and SIM card. LOL
